Both share roughly the same performance and capability, with their efficiency in preparing frozen fruit smoothies being better than most mid-range immersion blenders. And they’re also capable of emulsifying mayonnaise. When it comes to beating eggs, neither cut the mustard, but this is a shortcoming of any blending shaft; in our hands-on testing, only with the whisk attachment could we create stiff peaks.

The two designs are quite similar, too. They both pack a catchy look and a simple working system. The precise indicator for battery status is a huge plus as well. Though, we prefer the colored LED ring of the Chefman Cordless to the light on the KitchenAid’s top.

Pros & Cons

  • A beaker is included for greater convenience 
  • Ergonomically-designed handle provides secure grip

  • It feels like a fancy blender.
  • Multiple speed options allow for a wide range of tasks. 
  • It is capable of pulverizing frozen fruit and making mayonnaise.
  • Colored LED ring indicates the battery’s status accurately.
  • All the buttons are easy to control.
  • An included cookware guard keeps pots and pans scratch-free.
  • Its performance is often inconsistent
  • Not as efficient as other similar blenders
  • It is unable to whip eggs due to the lack of a whisk attachment
